I am grateful Dr. Karenko is my Cardiologist. She is very professional and more importantly to me made me smile while having a procedure done that I was very anxious about. Thank you Dr. Korenko.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Karenko says..

As an osteopathic physician specializing in cardiology, I look at the patient as a whole – mind, body and spirit – and understand all these aspects play a role in their health. I work with patients to help them feel better and promote their overall health and wellness.

I have special interest in peripheral vascular disease (PVD), critical limb ischemia (CLI) and amputation prevention. I have extensive experience treating PVD, utilizing the nation’s leading techniques to restore circulation and save limbs from amputation.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Karenko says..

As a cardiologist, I perform various diagnostic and interventional procedures, including angioplasty, cardiac catheterization, echocardiogram, and radio frequency ablation.

I also have extensive experience with interventional treatments for peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and critical limb ischemia (CLI), including a treatment pioneered at Metro Heart & Vascular - and the first of its kind in the world - to re-establish blood flow in the tiny arteries in the legs and feet and help patients avoid amputation.
